Tim Kindberg's research interests lie in applying ubiquitous and mobile computing technologies to new kinds of digital media platforms.

Vorb creates video communities around points of view they care about. Choose a hashtag, put out a call to action. Vorb makes a live interactive orb of the uploaded videos.

We have supplied vorbs to Twitter, Bristol Learning City and the i-Docs interactive documentary festival, among others.

Vorb came about via the synchronised recording and playback magic of Nth Screen, which was instrumental in Time for Rights, a commission by 1215.Today awarded to Nth Screen’s creator Tim Kindberg. Tim set out to engage young people around the world about human rights through mobile video in 2015, the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. Time for Rights resulted in the Sphere of Rights, which in turn morphed into Vorb, the generic hashtag-based platform.

Tim works on Vorb with Alistair Bryan, Marketing, and Kelly Finnegan, Creative.
